2007 Chevrolet Equinox Recalls

Potential Fuel Leak from Fuel Tank Area

Certain vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, the states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, or Texas are being recalled because the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12190.

Head Protection In A Crash Not Up To Standards

Protection from head injury may not be sufficient for vehicles not equipped with optional roof rail air bags or an optional sunroof. Dealers will install energy absorbing foam to each of the a-pillar trim assemblies free of charge to resolve the concern.

Passenger Front Air Bag May Shut Off Unintentionally

The passenger side air bag may be deactivated inadvertently due to a sensor malfunction that detects occupant weight. Dealers will reprogram the seat's electronic control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.

2007 Chevrolet Equinox Reviews

I LOVE THE EQUINOX AND THE WAY IT HANDLE THE ROAD, BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM THAT I HAVE IS THAT WATER GETS INTO THE HEAD LIGHTS WHEN IT RAINS.
I truly love my Equinox. It is roomy and rides smooth. The only complaint is I can't get the interior lights to come on when I open the doors. I did everything the manual said....no luck! However, they do come on if I push the interior reading lights. Any ideas???
Love this vehicle. Handles and rides like a sedan, but takes inclines and infrequent off-road trips like a champ. Very quiet V-6, low cost maintenance.
